    It reminds me of the wedding scene in Love Actually – and therefore kind of awesome!

    @HonoraryNerd:  we had an acapella choir at our wedding, and it was awesome! They weren’t seated amongst the guests, so it wasn’t a surprise. But several of my guests told me they had never been to a wedding before with a choir, and they loved it. I say do it!

    I think that sounds so fun and different!  And the first thing I thought of was Love Actually too. 🙂  Will your fiancé be in on it, or will it be a surprise for him as well?

    @HonoraryNerd:  I love it. I also think it could be awesome for the recessional. Then it doesn’t take away from your entrance at all. 

    Also, I like the idea of it being a surprise.

    That would be so awesome. You should totally do it and keep it a surprise.

    @HonoraryNerd:  I like that idea!  Just be aware that your other guests (with less beautiful voices) might join in.

    @HonoraryNerd:  I think it’ll be amazing, as long as you make sure the acoustics work for where they’re sitting in the pews.

    If you’re in a space with a choir loft, you could have them seated there, or together towards the back but dressed normally as regular guests and I doubt anyone would realize they weren’t until it came time to sing.

    I really really wanted to do that, too. I don’t think it’ll work out in my case, but PLEASE DO IT.
